Thai Peanut Satay Celery Sticks

After filling up with WAY too much chocolate this past weekend, I thought I would opt for some healthy snacks today. I started the day off with some delicious honeydew melon, followed by some yogurt with walnuts, blueberries and hemp hearts. Later, I made a batch of these yummy thai peanut satay celery sticks for my afternoon snack. They are perfect for snacking, as they have sweet, salty and savoury covered – a great way to enjoy thai flavours with little work. These fancy celery sticks are also ideal as an appetizer for your next party or potluck. 

Hope you are all having a great week so far :)


Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup of natural creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons of sweet chile sauce (plus more for dipping)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons of low-sodium soy sauce
  • 10 large celery stalks; each cut into 3 sticks
  • 2 large carrots; peeled and finely grated (approx. 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup of black sesame seeds

Method

1. Stir together the peanut butter, lime juice, sesame oil, chile sauce, ground ginger and soy sauce in a bowl until smooth.

2. Spread 1 teaspoon of the peanut butter mixture inside each celery stick.

3. Stir together the grated carrot and sesame seeds in a shallow dish. Dip the celery sticks into carrot mixture, peanut butter side down, to coat the filling with carrots and sesame seeds.

Serve with a small bowl of sweet chile sauce for dipping.

Yield: 30 celery sticks

      Oh man, I did a lot of damage this past weekend. My lovely mom made me a batch of chocolate chip oatmeal cookies as an Easter gift. I pretty much ate the entire batch in 36 hours. LOL. Oopsie!!!
